Millen: Holloway was tiring

Crystal Palace caretaker manager Keith Millen could see that Ian Holloway was tiring but admits it was difficult going into training without his friend this morning.

When you look back at the last three or four years he has been in the play-offs and getting promoted and hasn't really had a summer off.

When we won promotion this year he was straight in to the recruitment of new players and was pretty tired when we came back from pre-season.

When you don't get results it does take its toll and I think the frustration of not quite rejuvenating the group was quite hard for him to accept.
